SANTA FE, New Mexico — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez has traveled to Texas to raise money for her re-election campaign.
Martinez campaign spokesman Chris Sanchez said Martinez held a fundraiser on Monday in Midland, a West Texas community in the oil-producing Permian Basin.
The governor's campaign will pay for her travel costs.
Sanchez said Martinez was in California on Saturday for a Republican Governors Association conference at Newport Coast and she returned to New Mexico the next day. The association is to cover Martinez's travel expenses.
Martinez reported cash-on-hand of $3.8 million in her re-election account at the start of the month and Democratic challenger Gary King had a balance of almost $158,000.
